From Geography to a career with the united nations

Charlie Avis studied A Levels in Geography, Maths and Physics, as well as a PE Diploma during his time at HSDC Havant (previously Havant College) back in 1985, and through these early career-defining decisions his options were opened up to a number of different universities and endless future options.

Now with his career well established, Charlie works as a UN Officer in the United Nations Environment Programme in Geneva, Switzerland.

Reflecting on his time at the former Havant College, Charlie said:

“Havant helped me get three solid A Level passes which basically then gave me my choice of any university.

“This paved the way for me to follow my passion for the environment and, luckily, I’ve been fortunate enough to work in that sector ever since.”
